Abstract

An experiment was conducted to ascertain if supplementing a completely purified diet with tin, vanadium chromium and nickel would enhance chick performance between hatching and 27-days posthatching. No effects on rate and efficiency of gain or on feather development were noted. A level of 350 p.p.m. magnesium, all in inorganic form, was found adequate for chick growth during this period.
